Hi Joe,

Can you recommend a shopping cart system that is easy to set up and use, be it 
open source or not? Trying to make a decision myself at the moment and would be 
interested to hear your thoughts.

Cheers
Paul

why would it not work as a directory under the main site tree, i.e.: 
www.domain.com.au/shop/<http://www.domain.com.au/shop/>.

I think developers are keen on a lightweight, simple to use and deploy and 
template shopping cart system. ZenCart and osCommmerce are terrible to both set 
up and use, so lose-lose IMHO.

Surely a simple shopping cart that is relatively genertic isn't THAT 
complicated to do?

I am a pretty active magento developer and highly recommend it as well.. but it 
really only suits those clients whose whole site is an ecommerce solution. For 
example, take a look at a client of mine  - julesroc.com.au

I am working on a custom solution that allows ecommerce to be a part of a 
clients website. So the first question I would be asking is what are the needs 
of the client. A complete ecommerce solution or an ecommerce component within 
their site.

I think it would be worth your while to go and check out Magento - 
http://www.magentocommerce.com/

The makers of this product have done a great job of making it standards 
compliant, as well as very usable. We're in the process of integrating it into 
a new project.

My friend populated the shop at the time because he was savvy with Photoshop 
and could do all the image work himself. But you could as well end up doing 
that too if your client hasn't that knowledge.
That's what I am afraid of.

I think you should weigh your time vs. the fee your colleague charges. You 
might want to learn ZenCart or another eCommerce solution so you can do it in 
the future.
Thanks, Jens - will re-think if a cart is really necessary.

Kind regards

Lyn
